Instrumental Music Scholarship

Our Opportunities

Instrumental Music Scholarship

The Department of Education has a specialist music program through the School of Instrumental Music (SIM). Primary schools are offered programs in Strings, Brass, Woodwind or Percussion however the choice of instruments is based on the needs of the feeder high school. At Bambara Primary School, a select number of Year 5 students are offered a place in the Brass or Woodwind Scholarship program.

These scholarship programs are in trumpet or clarinet. Students are taught one of these instruments in a small group setting for half an hour a week by a specialist instrumental teacher who is an accomplished musician. No fees are charged except there is a small lease fee for the hire of the instrument (see Contributions and Charges Schedule). Students may continue these lessons in Year 6 but have to purchase their own instrument.

Instrumental Students perform as a Brass ensemble and have the opportunity to participate in a Jazz band. All scholarship students are expected to be an active member of the school choir.
